critical for the governor. let's bring in "news nation" panel. david godfrin, michael and steve daise, conservative radio talk show host. thanks to you for being with me on this friday. steve, let me start with you. these new poll numbers, the head-to-head showing the president now ahead in all three states, north carolina, nevada and new hampshire. new hampshire, of course, romney's home away from home where he has a vacation spot. governor romney's favorables continue to be underwater in all but north carolina now. combine these numbers with what we've seen all week, how worried are republicans? how worried are they that we're approaching the point where it might be time to focus on the congressional races? >> i think people are getting very worried, and i had a pollster doing conservative polling for three decades on my show last night. he said it may be time to go back to a 1996 model of telling the american people, listen, if you're going to re-elect bill clinton, you better have republicans in the congress to make sure to keep him in check. i think it may be a little early for t
lloyd back from total blindness. and "on the road", steve hartman visits a restaurant whose special city a second helping of compassion. >> i've been very lucky and i want people to have what i have. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" yzith scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening, mitt romney has 39 days to turn his 45esidential campaign into a winner but the support of a key voting group is in jeopardy. seniors tend to vote republicans but many are concerned about what a president romney might do with medicare. look at this poll of key swing states by the "washington post." in florida where nearly one out of three voters is over 65, romney trails president obama by four points. 51% to 47%. in ohio, romney is down eight points, 52% to 44%. and it gets about the same z mbers in virginia, eight points behind. in those three states, of senior voters who said medicare is extremely important 53% are going with president obama, 42% mitt romney. we asked dean reynolds to tell us more about the medicare factor. >> the first step to a stronger strcare is to repeal obamacare.
't have wealth. that's who he needs to be. >> it sounds like steve is saying let mitt be mitt. is it too late for that? >> well, it's not as though people don't understand who mitt romney is. i'm coming to you from my hometown of madison, wisconsin. wisconsin is a swing state, and wisconsin is the home state of paul ryan, who is also on the republican ticket. the gamble that the republicans made was that he would give them a bump here in the upper midwest, and that has not happened. it's not because paul ryan fails to connect with people or people don't know who mitt romney is. i think we are witnessing a full-scale swing in the pendulum. here in wisconsin scott walker survived the recall effort, but you have tammy baldwin pulling ahead of tommy thompson, a double-digit swing from where he was. she used to be trailing after the democratic convention. president obama is pulling ahead in the upper midwest. i think this may be less about -- this is only mitt romney, and mitt has to be mitt and it's all about mitt. this runs deeper than that. this is a sort of recentering of the american ele
battlegrounds today tell an obama victory story. democratic strategist steve el mendorf, kerry's deputy campaign manager in '04. how are you? >> good, how are you. >> tell me about why your guy won the debates and lost the election and what that says potentially about this dynamic and this race right now is this. >> i think any challenger has a benefit when they get up on the stage against the president of the united states. the debates level the playing field. they put you on the stage in an equal footing. i think mitt romney comes into the debate with an advantage because of that. i think the question in this race, all campaigns are different and i think in this race, this is very much of a choice election. i think people see very different visions for the future between these two candidates and my guess is, when we get out of the debates they are going to continue to see the two visions and right now they're picking barack obama's vision. i think in 2004, it was more of a referendum on bush and i think ultimately people decided that the referendum they wanteded to stay with the incumbent. i t
a two-point bump. either way it's news. >> let's get right to our panel now. we're joined by steve kornacki, co-host of "the cycle," jimy williams back in new york. steve, mr. hannity and, what's his name, mr. carlson, is that his name, they talk about whipping up fear, paranoia and hatred. that's them, not the video, isn't it? >> i mean, it is amazing to me that the right is still, five years after barack obama became a presidential candidate -- >> five years after i saw that very video. >> the moment, if there was a moment the whole jeremiah wright association and all this racial stuff that's there, if there was a moment that that was going to hurt and sink barack obama politically, it was april of 2008. there was a serious crisis in barack obama's campaign. he delivered a speech on race, a speech to be remembered for years to come and that put the issue to rest for 70%, 80% of the public. but there's this sliver of the public on the right still living in april of 200. it's a real problem for the republican party. when you're a month away from the election and your candidate is l
come one day after spain announced its 2013 budget and steve sedgwick will be joining us live with more on all of that in just a few minutes. france is also announcing its budget plans today. president hollande said that the budget will be the toughest in 30 years. government needs to find about $39 billion of spending cuts or deshl resources to meet its 2013 deficit target. and fitch is lowering its 2012 growth forecasts both for china and india. citing deteriorating outlook of the global economy. so not a great way to start the morning. >> no, not great, but i like seeing what we did -- i saw ge and i was going to tell whoever thinks that we need to kiss up to them still -- >> minority partner. >> they are. but comcast would have been a better -- or we could have done both. and did i see something that it had first quarter, second quarter, third quarter? what do i need in the fourth quarter to get to the 30%? do we hahave that anymore? is that gone? no, they don't have it. >> i saw the dow, s&p and nasdaq. >> what did it add up to? adds up to like 15 or so. >> i just saw for this quar
their own medical coverage. so let's debate this. steve moore, senior economics writer for "the wall street journal", dr -- [inaudible] ceo of vital springs technologies and author of "get off the dime: the secret of changing who pays for your health care." and simon rosenberg, president and founder of the new democrat network, also a former clinton campaign adviser. gentlemen, thanks so much for being here. steve, let me start with you. so places like sears and olive garden, red lobster, they're going to give their employees a chunk of change, and supposedly you can go out and buy your own insurance. is this a great idea or a horrible idea? [laughter] >> i actually kind of like the direction here of, basically, saying to workers you can shop around, you can buy the health care plan that really suits your need. so it's a kind of freedom of choice approach. now, the way this ties in, by the way, allison, to obama's health care plan that you were talking about a minute ago is that under obama's plan what you're seeing is a lot of employers are dropping their health care plans that they provid
of interviews for "60 minutes," steve kroft and i asked about their medicare plans. >> what i won't do is take governor romney and congressman ryan's recommendations to turn medicare into a voucher system which would dump more costs on to seniors. what i'm not willing to do is to pay for another tax cut for folks like you and me by cutting help to young people to go to college or basic research that might end up providing cures for debilitating diseases. that's not a recipe for growth and we can reduce our deficit, including making some smart decisions on medicare in particular, where we're focused on lowering health care costs by reforming how health care is delivered but we don't need to be voucherizing the system to dump those costs on to seniors because, frankly, they can't afford it right now. >> pelley: there is a lot of rhetoric about medicare. what do you intend to do? >> well, i don't want any change to medicare for current seniors or for those that are nearing retirement. so the plan stays exactly same. >> pelley: make sure i understand. the idea under your plan for future seniors wo
, a defiant steve jobs waited weeks before acknowledging an antenna problem in the iphone 4. >> then, there are some customers who are having problems with their iphone 4s. and i apologize to them. >> reporter: a rare concession from a man whose drive for perfection made apple number one. given how detail oriented steve jobs was, one has to wonder if something so blatantly obvious would have happened under his watch. >> i think on one hand, we can definitely assume that he would have been really meticulous and he would have found these errors. but on the other hand, this could have been his fault. he was really pushing for a separation between google and apple. >> reporter: and apple ceo today went as far as suggesting that customers continue to use going google maps and other rival products until apple works out the glitches in its own program. clearly a humbling day for him. >> your iphone alarm still works for "gma" in the morning. >> reporter: i'll be up early. >> we'll see you then. >>> still much more ahead on "world news" this friday night. the political power couple and their

>> steve: if you want to watch jackie in our after the show show, log on right now for the after the show show. that wraps up another week. where has the time gone? we'll be back here monday, same time, same channel, we hope to see you then. bill: we have got a packed program. good morning, everybody. want to start with this now. fox news alert. there are brand new unemployment numbers that could have a impact on race for the white house. labor department reporting unemployment dropses below 8% first time in four years. a lot of questions remain on those numbers. good morn ebb everybody, i'm bill hemmer. martha: good morning everybody, i'm martha maccallum. last time we saw rate this low, that would be january 2009, when president obama took office. the labor department says of these numbers, employers added only 114,000 jobs over the course of that month. so that raises a let of questions about this headline number. many jobs added are part-time jobs. bill: stuart varney, anchor of "varney & company" in the fox business network. you read what? >> there is widespread mistrust of
. did you say first time ever? >> the first time ever they're 4-0. >> you mean not even under steve ba bartkowski? >> here's the thing. nobody's going to take them seriously until january. it's going to be so much pressure when the playoffs come around because they haven't delivered under matt ryan. and they could. they could run the table. >> just for the record, you say they haven't delivered in january under matt ryan. they haven't delivered in january since 1966. >> they went to the super bowl in 1998. >> dirty birds. >> and then got killed by the broncos, went out all night partying. >> in fairness. in fairness. >> no, we've had a very sad, sad playoff group, but they looked good. >> they looked very good. and character builder. they had the ball at their own 1. they drove down, got the winning field goal. >> is there a worse team in football than the dolphins? >> the browns. that's the thing. the raiders have gotten blown out a couple of times but they have a win over the steelers which no one can figure out. >> why can't the dolphins turn it around? it's been a rough, rough stre
issues. maybe he can clarify the truth for us coming up on wednesday night. i'm joined tonight by steve benen, msnbc contributor and writer for the maddow blog. he keeps track of mitt romney's lies in a series call mitt mendacity. great to have you with us tonight, steve. romney's own pollster said last month, we're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers. so why is romney's debate strategy to fact check the president? i find it interesting. >> that's a good question. i was thinking, on the way over here, how i haven't been in college for a long time, but i remember being a freshman and taking psych 101 and remember learning about something when people identify their most glaring faults and project those faults on to the other people. i'm think this is a great example of that. because mitt romney has demonstrated over the course of several months as one of the most dishonest i've ever seen. so for him to turn around and say he wants to look forward to using the debates to somehow suggest the president has been dishonest, i think that's a classic example of projection.
the light sxwro and join our team. >> joining us now is steve boykin and anne cornbluth and steve deyes. the president out at that rally seemed more enthusiastic. he said that was not the real mitt romney who showed up at the debate last night. so the question to you, was it the real president obama who showed up last night? >> great question, because the president obama at that rally is not what i saw on the debate stage last night. one lingering question in my mind and i even tweeted it in real time. did he know he was on a split screen the entire evening? because style matters, tamron, and the substance -- you know the fact finders are already having a field day on. stylistically he lost the debate. he looked dmismissive and troubled to be there. the president did not respond in kind the way he did in the rally today. >> anne a lot of people are saying all of you folks talking about style and the body language are missing the point. this was supposed to be about substance, and that goes so far because you have the president today saying who is the real mitt romney. the question is fo

many brands it actually can get pretty confusing. abc's steve osunsami sorts it out. >> reporter: government officials trying to contain the salmonella outbreak doesn't look good. so far, 30 people sick, most of them children, across 19 states. for families searching through kitchen cabinets for potentially dangerous jars of nut butter, it is terribly confusing. first, what jars and brands are being recalled? well, it isn't your larger name brand like jif or skippy. all the brand are linked to sunland peanut corporation in new mexico they make peanut butter, sunland, trader joe's, harry and david and sprouts and the archer brand sold at target. >> all the illnesses investigated are related to peanut butter products from the plant. >> reporter: the company says to look on the side of the jar if the "best if used by" date is between may 1st and september 24, 2013. throw it away. what if your family has gone through half of the jar, what are the signs? >> high fever, stomach cramps, dysentery which can show up in one to three days. we spoke to families of children who got sick, they
and steve carell have been putting out videos to encourage people not to be deterred. a new video by samuel l. jackson hit the internet. it's a takeoff of his blockbuster reading of a children's book. let's listen. >> mom, dad, the election is coming up soon. >> we're tired right now, hon. go back to your room. >> i'm sorry, my friend, but there's no time to snore. an out of touch millionaire has just declared war on schools, the environment, and unions, fair pay. we're all on our own if romney has his way. and he's against safety nets. if you fall, tough luck. so i strongly suggest that you wake the [ bleep ] up. >> well, joining me right now is daily show creator lizz winstead. there's something the way these guys can do it and we can never do it, the sort of anti-hero types like sarah and samuel l. jackson. how do they connect with youngers voters who might be a little busy on election day? >> i'm not sure it's even just younger voters, chris. i think sometimes, and when i look at my audiences when i do standup and i'm talking about these issues, i'm surprised i don't see a room full of
steve schmidt this morning on "morning joe" reacting to last night's debate. how much weight do the debates actually carry? for more reaction to the debates last night, i want to bring in live from seattle, minneapolis contributor ron reagan. senator of former president, ronald reagan. and we have columnist megan mccain, daughter of former presidential candidate john mccain. megan, i want to start with you, was this debate a reprieve for mitt romney? steve says they are basically a reset moving forward in watching the numbers tighten with momentum, the wind at his back. >> let me tell you something, thomas, this morning is a good morning to be a romney supporter. yes, i definitely think that mitt romney came back swinging and completely reset the election and gained new momentum and enthusiasm and did an incredible job last night and i have never been more proud of him. >> ron, ed schultz told me liberals are emotional and disappointed that the president was not more aggressive. and others say this is equivalent of the rnc convention, a big lackluster. >> he was a bit off his ga
than he has ever been. abc's steve osunsami has this story. >> reporter: 8-year-old nate lebron says it fellike he was going to die because he ate out of a jar of peanut butter his father brought from a trader joe's grocery store. >> it felt very painful. the stomach cramps i was screaming loud. and i was saying "why does this happen to me?" >> reporter: one of 30 confirmed salmonella victims so far. families should know symptoms show up usually within three days. it was a terrible scare that started saturday, august 25th with classic symptoms parents should look for. first painful stomach cramps. then severe headache. a 103-degree fever. dysentery. by monday morning he was vomiting too, but he was now bleeding. doctors couldn't figure it out. wednesday he had to be hospitalized. his fever didn't break until friday. he was already home when the test results came back the following tuesday. salmonella, a unique strain linked to recalled peanut butter. how frightened were you by all this? >> it is our child, our baby, i don't think any parent would want to been that position. >> i thou
narrative the romney campaign has to drive. >> steve, there has been at least according to the politico argument a disagreement within the campaign whether libya is off topic or they should stick to the economic message. polls have shown movement towards mitt romney on foreign policy. to the larger question, does this go to competence? >> i think every day the romney campaign is talking about something other than the economy is probably a bad day for them. i think it's a sign of their desperation they have to make politics out of what was a terrible tragedy. and i think the obama administration has a lot of good things on foreign policy to talk about. he's president of the united states. i think, you know, the situation was unfortunately and all the information sometimes doesn't come out as timely as people would like because it's the fog of war. but i think people have great confidence in barack obama's abilities on foreign policy and how he's managed difficult situations overseas. >> john, as mitt romney has said president obama didn't level with american people about that. to that qu
of legendary co-founder steve jobs, and cbs's mandy drury is here with what's moving your money. so, i remember this a year ago. the question was, how will apple do without the vision of steve jobs? and i guess if you look at the stock price, the answer is not bad. >> absolutely. the numbers really do tell the full story here, chris. you know, you have, for example, on october the 5th 2011, about a year ago, $376.63 was what it cost you for one apple stock. now about a year later, october the 4th, 2012, $668.80 approximately. that's up about 77%, chris. you know, it's thanks to several products that obviously jobs helped to invent, things like ipods, iphone, ipad and they have helped to power stack in apple up to the record high just about a week or so ago we were above $700 for one apple stock. so up nearly twofold this past year. apple has become, chris, the most valuable and most profitable company in the world. tim cook must be doing something right. >> speaking of companies that generate buzz, i was devastated to read on the front page of the "wall street journal" today, can i just read yo
people, many of them kids, have gotten sick. abc's steve osunsami has more. >> reporter: what is especially frightening is that most of the people who have gotten sick from the so-called recalled peanut butter are children under the age of 10. >> i am concerned. i love peanut butter. >> you don't know what you are getting. it is very scary. >> reporter: this began with one brand of sea salt peanut butter at trader joe's, but the recall has cleared peanut butter aisles at kroger, whole foods, and target. investigators have traced the trouble to sunland incorporated, a peanut butter manufacturer in new mexico that sells products in grocery stores across the country. the list of recalled pea nut butter products is 101 items long and includes nut butters made with almonds, cashews, and sesame seeds. and it gets worse. companies like oregon ice cream, and fairy tale brownies which used the recalled nut butter to make cookies and baked goods they're now recalling their products too. >> people have been getting sick over the last month. and because there's often a two-week delay or s
was speaking more. then you could by any other individual plays. let me bring in steve schmidt who is a senior strategist. what's your overall assessment? >> i think it was a great night for mitt romney. i think the doom and gloom that's been hanging over the romney campaign, republicans in general has lifted tonight. i think that the democratic advance which began literally a month ago when clint eastwood walked out on stage ended tonight. i think the race is going to tighten. i think mitt romney was in command of this from the beginning. i'm not sure that he lost an exchange during the entire debate. a startling performance in my view and just the context of how good mitt romney was tonight. >> i thought that in terms of individual exchanges i think what may have been most notable, there wasn't i think a single direct attack against mitt romney from president obama. however, they substantively dealt with policy matters. >> he was looking down tonight. he was passive. he was abstract in his answers. mitt romney was talking about real people, giving real examples. i thought he was clear. he wa
. they might sing a song together. >> steve: go to the after the show show. see you tomorrow. bill require want to start with a fox news alert. the obama team now reacting to a controversial video from 2007 that is just resurfaced. that's where we start. good morning. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to america's newsroom. >> i'm jamie colby and i'm in for martha. we saw that video repleased full by "the daily caller." the comment are being characterized by critics as racially charged. bill: here is the video when candidate obama talks about the stafford act. >> when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act, said this is too serious a problem. we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you have got to put in. here is $10. that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation, we don't expect you to come up with your own money here. here the money to rebuild. we are not going to wait for to you scratch it together because you are part of the american family. what as happening down in new orleans? whe
-mail and facebook accounts. steve? >>reporter: the aclu says this is done without warrants and without enough oversight or accountability. the surveillance in question records things about phone calls, not the actual content and the aclu questions the necessity. >> this isn't about terrorism. these are regular law enforcement investigations and this is investigating people's communications. these are would they talk to, who they e-mail, who they engage in online connections with, friends, family, colleagues and loved ones. >>reporter: 2009 twine and 2011 the numbers of orders for surveillance on telephones went up 60 percent. during the same period ordered for surveillance of e-mail and network data increased 361 percent. in the past, the device had to be attached to the phone to get this data but now it can be done by a phone company's call routing equipment. the aclu has done it without a judge considering the merits of each case. the justice department fired back saying in every instance cited a federal judge authorized this activity as new technologies are being use, and the use of orders
: steve, on the economy specifically, a majority of voters disapprove of the handling of the economy by the president. take a look at this. almost 60% think his economic policies have actually hurt the economy or made no difference at all and that of course is by far the number one issue yet 50% say he deserves to be reelected. do you think, steve, people believe the bill clinton argument that nobody, no president, could have actually solved this in four years? >> yeah, i do think that had some effect. there is no question that president obama came out of the conventions with a little bit of momentum. you talk, it is not only showing up in the public polling that we're talking about here today but talk to republican pollsters polling on senate and house races and they will talk about what they call the clinton bump. they have seen it across polling in various parts of the country that voters who are asked a question is the country on the right track, is the country on the wrong track, which most pollsters believe the single best determiner ho will win in november, there was a jump in
